Help Us

Adopt a Horse or Donkey FUN-raiser
 
Verland conducts an ongoing Adopt-a-Horse-Donkey Fun-raiser. Donations from the public help us to maintain our wonderful four-legged family.  Donations of cash enable us to purchase feed, supplements, farrier services, veterinary care, and other materials that keep our therapy barn running. Each donor receives an adoption certificate and the chance to get his/her picture taken with the adopted animal friend. Donations at any level, from $10 and up, will be accepted with gratitude.

Since 1982, Verland's Equestrian Therapy program has helped individuals with disabilities to strengthen physically, mentally, and emotionally through a variety of equine-assisted activities.
 
We invite you to help Buddy, Jada, Trigger, Oden, Pedro and Thor stay well cared for, so that they can help others.
